ConvergenceA psychologist paralyzed by fear.

A mother propelled by love.

A stalker bent on destruction.

Psychology professor Dr. Denilyn Rossi contends that the past is either a shadow that haunts us or a force that propels us. The choice is ours, she tells her students. What she doesn’t tell them is that her own past is a shadow she can’t seem to shake. Fear has immobilized her and is taking a costly toll.

Adelia Sanchez, however, has embraced Dr. Rossi’s teaching. She is ready to confront fear and render it powerless—using the trauma of her past to propel her to entrap the man who stalked and brutally attacked her.

As Denilyn’s past and Adelia’s present converge at the Kaweah River, a dangerous man bent on destruction threatens them both. Will he uncover the secret Deni and Adelia have fought so hard to protect?

Book Review:

Well, first things first, I loved this book. It continually surprised me. Just when I thought I had it figured out, something would come sailing in out of left field and throw me for a loop.

Probably my favorite thing was how Convergence was interwoven between two separate storylines and the way the author was able to use white water rafting and rivers as metaphors for what the characters were going through. I knew the title would have specific meaning somewhere in the book. When it was revealed, I gave a nod of approval. Well done, exceptional.

The storyline goes back and forth between Denilyn of the present and Denilyn of ten years ago. We also have Adelia’s storyline. The back and forth can get confusing if you forget to read the heading at the top of the chapter so you know which character you’re following. I love split timelines and multiple storylines, so this was no problem for me.

I will admit I had the who-done-it figured out long before the end. But the well-being of the characters kept me reading till the end.

I nominate Keith for the ‘worst-fictional-husband’ award. Sorry, but it’s true. He was an okay guy, just way, way, way too immature. I think Ginny Yttrup did a fine job in making relatable characters – in the love ’em and in the hate ’em categories. I couldn’t believe it when I found out this was her first suspense novel.

From the Christian Fiction aspect, there was a nice balance. My favorite scenes were the action scenes. Both the white water rafting and skydiving scenes were breathtaking.
